LDAP Import - Server Options

Use the Import Options page to select the type of LDAP import you would like to perform, set up a schedule, enter LDAP search settings, and define logging.

Note: This section describes options applicable to all import types.

For information about options for specific import types, refer to:

LDAP Scheduling Options

This section enables you to schedule LDAP imports and updates. For example, if you want to ensure that SBM user data is synchronized with your LDAP user data, create a schedule that will automatically update your SBM users from LDAP on a recurring basis.
Tip: You must enter valid LDAP search settings before you can schedule an import or update task.

Status messages for scheduled imports and updates appear in the Notification Server log file (click Open Log in the Notification Server tab in SBM Configurator to view the messages).

After you have defined one or more LDAP option sets, click Add (+) to launch the scheduler. In the LDAP Scheduling dialog box, select an LDAP Option Set to schedule, enter the desired frequency that it should execute, and then click OK.

To delete an existing schedule, select the schedule, and then click Details or double-click. In the LDAP Scheduling dialog box, click Remove schedule, and then click OK. A summary of the scheduled import or update appears in the Scheduling section.

LDAP Search Settings

Save LDAP import option sets so that you can reuse them for scheduled imports and for updating user account and contact data. Server information, user and contact attribute mapping, and template user settings are saved with the import option set.

LDAP Attributes Sample Data

This section contains sample data to assist you in mapping LDAP attributes to SBM attributes. Initially, the section does not contain any information. Click Refresh to populate the section with LDAP attributes and sample data from a user in your LDAP store. Click Refresh to see sample data from other users in your LDAP directory.

User accounts are listed based on the order they are stored in the LDAP directory.

LDAP Logging and E-mail Options

Use these options to send a copy of the import log file by e-mail when the import process completes and to send e-mail messages to newly imported users.

The Notification Server must be configured and running to send import logs and new user confirmations. On-premise customers use SBM Configurator to manage the Notification Server. The Notification Server is enabled in on-demand systems.
